A rock band that consists of 9 members. Their genre has been endlessly debated ever since their S/T album. Fans (icluding myself) are called maggots by the band and usually call Slipknot simply heavy metal and/or hardcore while so-called "true metalheads" (who themselves are often extreme-metal fans and appear to hate just about any form of mainstream metal and/or rock) call Slipknot nu-metal and/or non-metal. Slipknot refer to themselves as simply metal. "True" Goths and "true metalheads" often bash Slipknot. Some people even go so far as to say Slipknot is untalented which I could say about probably half of the bands or music groups that they listen to. People often say Slipknot fans (or maggots) are musically-tasteless mallcore kids, but some fans are just normal teenagers that happen to like Slipknot's music. Also, detractors of Slipknot's music will say all that it is is screaming, even though they've never even listened to Slipknot's music themselves. Slipknot also has a lot of talent. Corey Taylor's vocals can range from aggresive screaming to melodic singing. Joey Jordison is one of the fastest drummers on Earth (or at least in the US.) Slipknot is a really great band overall. Of course, if you're some stupid-fuck that claims Slipknot sucks and yet you haven't listened to any of their music, or you can't handle aggresive music than I guess Slipknot isn't for you and you aren't Slipknot-worthy. Some of the fans also claim to be true maggots but actually have only heard of their more popular songs (i.e. Duality, Wait and Bleed) and claim to be fans only because they wear Slipknot T-Shirts and hoodies.
Slipknot hater: Aw, man, Slipknot sucks! All they do is scream and worship satan and they suck and got no talent, man! They are wannabe-metal and wannabe-goth, man! And all their fans are poseurs!
Maggot: You asswipe! You haven't even heard of any of their songs, have you? Also, true fans don't have to dress a certain way nor should they care whether Slipknot is metal or not! So fuck off!
Slipknot hater: Uh, I think I heard like uh this one song by them, like uh... Hot in Herre or something like that
Maggot: That's Nelly, dumbass! I'm gonna play one of their albums. Hmm... I think I'll play Iowa!
Slipknot hater: Agghh! My ears! Can't-stand-good-music! Must-listen-to pop, rap, emo, and R & B crap that floods the radio stations and MTV!!!! Agggh!

A great, original rock band that is often bashed by "Tru-metal" heads just because they are often called nu-metal and the founders of that genre. In reality, they are more of an experimental hard rock/alternative metal band. A lot of bands soon started to imitate KoRn's sound and KoRn along with these bands were called nu-metal and, as a result, "tru-metal" heads bashed KoRn. Also, people say KoRn is what angsty, white, wannabe-goth, suburban teens listen to, but KoRn is one of my favorite bands and I happen to be a city kid and I don't consider myself to be a goth, nor do I try to be one.
Tru-metalhead: Hey, you like KoRn? Damn, I can't stand that nu-metal shit! You must be one of those stupid fucking mindless wannabe non-conformist mall-core kids that from the suburbs!
Me: First off, KoRn isn't nu-metal, and even if they are, they're more original than those other nu-metal bands and they're still be a great band in my eyes, so fuck off! In fact, I don't care what genre they are. Second, I'm not a fucking mall-core kid and I live in the city, so go fuck yourself twice! Third, who gave you the right to categorize me as a person?
Tru-metalhead: Uh... you're a fucking mallcore kid. And KoRn isn't metal (cliche.) And KoRn is mainstream, too, so you're a conformist.
Me: (sigh) Whatever, I don't have the time to be bothered by fuckheads like you.
Tru-metalhead: Must-hate-all-mainstream-rock-music (turns out to be a "tru-metalhead" robot and blows up)
